Monday 23rd April 2018 to Sunday 29th April 2018

Monday 23rd April 2018
Up super early, dog walked, papers in for a change.  Into office for 7.20am.  Busy day, very tired, back home for a bit after 5pm, tea, dog walk, Allotment Association AGM. Read gas and electric meter.  Back home watched a few episodes of "In the Long Run" which I thought was very good.

Tuesday 24th April 2018
A bit late at 5.25am but never mind.  Dog walked no papers, into office for 7.30am.  No bacon cob because they told me I normally do Wednesday and Friday last week so need to keep things in order!  Regripped my driver when I'd had tea and what have you.  Did nowt on lotty due to crap weather.

Wednesday 25th April 2018
Up early, dog walked, no papers in to fetch.  Into the office for 7.25, bacon cob purchased on the way - all good stuff.   Not too bad a day at work then got back potted up the remaining tomato plants that were still in small'ish pots.  Next repotting will be into final pots I think.   Also potted up two courgette plants that I think may end up being massive.  One of the Sweet Peas has flowered already!

Have got a sweet pea plant that's got a bit premature on itself - will be having a word!

Up nice and early.  Took dog on a mini walk, made brekko, woke lucy up at 6am.  Went to get papers had to wait a bit, got into the office for 7.40.  Such is life!   Was intending to go to me mum and dads finish the jobs off however, there was a farm sale that needed viewing for nostalgia purposes so after tea went up to Darley Moor to travel back in time!
Potato Spinner - followed one of these a few times!

Old scales

A root crop chopper gizmoe

More grindery type stuff 

Nipped to lotty after, did a bit of weeding had a look over number 7 much work to be done to catch up but am going to get onto it real soon.    Brought a couple of small bags of compost home with me for potting up in a few weeks time.

Watched a couple of episodes of legion and then off to bed for 10:30pm

Friday 27th April 2018
Up at 5.35, papers didn't get in until 6:30 so running late from the get-go.  Such is life.

Saturday 28th April 2018
Dog walked, papers fetched, then down the lotty early doors to get 8 barrows worth of manure up onto plot 7.  All good garden stuff as Uncle Peter would say.    Got 3 and a bit rows of spuds in on plot 7 as well. 
Potato row in foreground - pic took on Sunday! 

Golf at 12:26 at Ashbourne - never stopped drizzle raining all the way round.  Tried out a new old driver - a Cleveland Highbore XL 9.5 degree, stiff shaft which I'd given up on in the past - couple of really good drives so am going to persevere with it.

Sunday 29th April 2018
Down lotty early with the dog, did a bit.  Back home for 7:30ish.  Up to Alstonefield Car Boot for 9am - absolutely freezing up there.   Got back and then went to do more at the lotty - cleared the bean row. 

Got back home, had a bit of snap.  Washed car, did a bit in greenhouse then off for even more golf!
This time played at the Manor Golf Club the other side of Uttoxeter.  Weather stayed dry but still nippy.   Played okay - couldn't get the pace of the greens so lots of three putts but hit the ball quite well at times found an orange castle tee works well with the new-old driver.    26 points overall was okay.
